Last year National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen spent time in Antarctica with the intent to photograph as many Leopard Seals as possible. Riding along in a zodiac they came across what was said to be the largest Leopard Seal the guide had ever seen. Nicklen slipped into the water with the alpha predator and captured these incredible images, along with some free dead penguins.
Bull Fighting is a truly disgusting “sport”. That is why it’s always good to see a bull fighter taking it by the horns… literally. Julio Aparicio, one of Spain’s most famous Matadors, was gored in throat on May, 22 2010. The horn “went though the tongue and penetrated the roof of his mouth, fracturing the jawbone” one of the medics who worked on Aparicio told AFP news in Madrid. Aparicio survived the injury to fight another day. The Bull was not so lucky.
The pursuit of the impossible
“The glass is actually broken by the precision sound of the vehicle,” said Dave Nordstrom, vice president of marketing for Lexus. “We wanted to show just how deep our pursuit of perfection and commitment to innovation goes. The LFA was designed to deliver its own unique exhaust note, and this illustrates that beautifully.”
Lexus worked with a team of engineers to enhance the acoustics of the LFA’s 4.8L engine by fine tuning the multi-stage exhaust system. From it’s low idle growl, to the wide open wail of the high-revving v10. By studying the notes generated by Formula 1 cars at maximum revs, the team created the signature LFA sound deliberately engineered to deliver a sound unlike any other on the road.
The note is so unique that Lexus even created an LFA ringtone (download free- click “Digital Premium”)
